BC EMA EMR Licensing Practise session

EMA_Candidate_Examination_Handbook

This practice session is intended for those that want to freshen up on their skills and anyone that is getting ready for their BC EMA EMR Licensing exam.

There will be skills stations for sagar splint, rolls and scenarios will include both trauma and medical calls and there will be a review of pharmacology.

To make sure we can take as much out of this practice as possible, we would require everyone to be on time and have their materials reviewed before coming to this practice session.

Please email us before the session of anything specific you would like to work on, so we can prepare for that – send your requests and any other questions to be-prepared@be-prepared.ca
